English singer-songwriter Frank Turner debuts at No. 9 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart (dated May 19), as his new LP Be More Kind debuts at No. 5 on Americana/Folk Albums and No. 95 on the Billboard 200 with 7,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music.

The Emerging Artists chart ranks the most popular developing artists of the week, using the same formula as the all-encompassing Billboard Artist 100, which measures artist activity across multiple Billboard charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, Billboard 200 and the Social 50. (The Artist 100 lists the most popular acts, overall, of the week.) However, the Emerging Artists chart excludes acts that have notched a top 25 entry on either the Hot 100 or Billboard 200, as well as artists that have achieved two or more top 10s on Billboard's "Hot" song genre charts and/or consumption-based "Top" album genre rankings.

Kind single "Blackout" concurrently rises 24-23 on the Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart.

Turner is no stranger to Billboard’s charts. He’s earned three additional entries on the Billboard 200: Positive Songs for Negative People (No. 69, 2015); Tape Deck Heart (No. 52, 2013); and England Keep My Bones (No. 143, 2011). He’s also tallied a No. 1 on Adult Alternative Songs, "Recovery," which spent two weeks at the summit in 2013.

Bad Wolves return to No. 1 on Emerging Artists for a third total week on top and for the first time since the March 31-dated chart, as their cover of The Cranberries’ "Zombie" spends a third week atop the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart and rises 6-5 on Hot Rock Songs (returning to its highpoint). Plus, the group’s "Hear Me Now," featuring Diamante, ascends 43-35 in its second week on Hot Rock Songs.

Lauv hits a new high (7-3) on Emerging Artists, powered by his breakout single "I Like Me Better." The song reaches the Pop Songs airplay chart's top 15 (18-14) in its 30th week, passing Melissa Etheridge's "Come to My Window" (27 weeks, 1994) to complete the lengthiest trip to the tier.

Rounding out the Emerging Artists top five, Jordan Davis climbs 4-2; NCT re-enters at No. 4, as it soars 26-2 on the Social 50; and Swae Lee rises 6-5.

Meanwhile, 11-piece K-pop boy band Wanna One re-enters Emerging Artists at No. 8, reaching the top 10 for the first time, as the act vaults 23-3 on the Social 50.
